On Saturday, members of APHA's Community Health Planning and Policy Development Section participated in the group's third annual Community Action Day. This year, Section members partnered with Boston's Mattapan Community Health Center to organize HEY! Let's Eat and Dance for Good Health, a day of crafts, dance and health promotion.
Above, Mattapan community residents, health center staff and APHA members take part in fun and healthy activities, such as balloon arts and dancing. Also during the day of action, residents could get in-person help and advice in navigating the new Health Insurance Marketplace and finding affordable coverage.
